Thanks for your nice response, David.
I am pleased that I was able to fill a part of the void
with at least a small part of Melvin's military history.
I think that it is remarkable that you wish to dedicate this family memorial to the memory of his death, probably at Santa Maria Infante, Italy, 14 May 1944.
As for replacement medals, I refer you to WW II Forum
post # 1963, dated 5 Nov 2000, which provides a method and source for application.
My daughter ordered my replacements about 15 years ago, and it seems that they arrived in a timely manner. It seems that she went thru the VA.
Hang in there.
